On Sunday, Oct. 14, Wanda Kenney of Knox was honored by an early 80th birthday party attended by numerous family members and friends.

The celebration was held at StoneCrest in Waldo. Festive seasonal decorations, flowers and desserts were displayed throughout the hall. A slide show capturing the highlights of Wanda's life was shown. The movie-style presentation included a clip of her sky-diving adventure at age 78.

This event marked a milestone birthday for a woman who has touched many lives in her 80 years. Her actual birthday is Jan. 7.
